Time Limitations for Notification of claims
Damaged in Transit
As internal damage cannot always be identified on delivery, the Customer must sign the drivers manifest as “unchecked”. Should any damage be identified on opening the package, Pillow Expert must be advised within 48 hours of the exact damage. It is imperative that the Customer does not dispose of any of the packaging, as this will be required to affect a claim against the carrier. The claim will be handled by Pillow Expert, and an arrangement will be made to collect the damaged goods and replacements will be sent.
We cannot accept any claims for damage if the above time scales are not followed.
It is the Customers responsibility to sign for the correct number of packages that are delivered, the Customer is required to check that the number of packages delivered equal the number of packages on the delivery drivers manifest/consignment note. Any shortages must be noted on the drivers manifest and it is the Customers responsibility to thereafter notify us within 48 hours of delivery.
Should the Customer be missing an item but has signed for the correct number of packages. The Customer must notify us within 48 hours of delivery.
